TelegraphMen’s self-esteem can be bruised when their female partner excels in social or intellectual fields, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association. Women’s self-esteem was not affected in the same way and, unlike men, women reported feeling more satisfied with their relationship when they thought about a time when their partner succeeded. According to the study of 896 heterosexuals published in the APA Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, men subconsciously had the lowest levels of self-esteem when they thought about a time when their female partner thrived in a situation where they had failed. Kate Ratliff, the study’s lead author of the University of Florida said: “It makes sense that a man might feel threatened if his girlfriend outperforms him in something they’re doing together, such as trying to lose weight. “But this research found evidence that men automatically interpret a partner’s success as their own failure, even when they’re not in direct competition.”

If you don’t want your wife to be rich as fuck, you’re a simpleton. A dunce. An imbecile. We talk about this all the time here on Barstool. I have always said I would have no problem with, and would prefer, to be Mr. Mom at home blogging while my Sugar Mama makes fucking loot at work. And every time these tough guy Stoolies come out in the comments section talking about how I’m not a real man and how I’m pathetic and blah blah blah. What a bunch of insecure idiots. Would you rather have more money or less money? I’ll take less money because the only way I feel good about myself is if my girl is poor! Insanity. Not to mention the alternative is making all the money and having some chick at home leech off you and spend all your money. That sounds absolutely awful. And spare me the “Whoever makes the money makes the decisions” routine. You know your wife makes the decisions no matter what. Stop lying to yourself.

In summation, you have gotta be one serious mental midget to want your wife broke in order to feel good about yourself. I don’t give a shit who makes it, as long as I get to spend it.
